I have these springs partnered up with the Racecomp Engineering Bilstein Strut Kit. All I can say is that the handling and comfort improvement is night and day difference from stock. The drop is as advertised 1/2 inch. I have the rear circlip set to top setting on the Bilstein Kit. My WRX no longer hits the bump stops driving over speed bumps. The the coil isolators ensure silent compression and expansion action. I was relieved to find out that these springs along with thicker sway bars (24mm front and 22mm rear) does not cause wheel lift going over moderately steep driveways. I would highly recommend these springs to go along with a matched set of dampers.
Yellows + Koni's = Perfect

Miles driven: 2000 Other suspension mods: Whiteline sways front and back, Kartboy end links. If you're on the fence about Blacks vs. Yellows, get the Yellows. I started out with the Blacks and stock struts. Big mistake. I bottomed out on EVERYTHING and the car still did not perform the way I wanted. I do monthly autocross days and probably dropped 2s from my lap time the first time I went out on these. Since I was previously running Blacks which drop more than the Yellows, I loved the ride height the Yellows provided. They drop the car enough to get a lower COG, but not so much that you cant easily navigate an incline turning into Starbucks (or Dunkin Donuts...whatever gets you running man). The ride is awesome. The WRX should have came from Japan like this. Hitting dips and bumps in the road lets you know youre driving a sports car, but doesnt shatter your lumbar. I attribute a lot of this to the soft setting on the Koni's, but the stiffness of the Yellows keeps the car from having that WRX bounce. The performance is amazing. I have only ran one track day with these, but I honestly didnt have the courage to find the edge of the suspension yet. With the blacks I knew exactly when the car would let go and send me into a skid, not with these. I cant wait to find the edge on the yellows. Attached is a pic in a slalom where one tire is off the ground. I didnt even realize it and the car was absolutely under control. Notice the limited body roll. Bigger sways helped, but the springs are also doing their job here.

Like another reviewer, I have these paired with Koni adjustable dampers. I was told that the Billy dampers and these springs were too harsh for some. And it looks like I made the right choice. I DD my 13 WRX at 1/4 turn from full soft. And have no back or spinal issues whatsoever. It is noticeably more firm, but in no way harsh or jarring. With F&R endlinks, Koni's and RCE Yellow springs, my car corners FLAT. Consider this a very viable option over cheap to moderately priced coilovers. your butt will thank you.
Way too harsh for Chicagoland

I installed these with the GTWorx Bilstein dampers for my 2011 WRX back in 2011 soon after I got my new car. No good. They were so harsh out of the box. I contacted Miles from RCE and he said that would take a thousand miles for the divider piston seals to break in. Years of waiting and they never softened up at all. During that time, I switched to 245/40-18 Dunlop SP Sport tires (vs. the 235/40-18 I was running) thinking that the taller sidewall would help soften the ride. It made the ride sloppier, not really softer since they were mounted on 18x8 OZ Superleggeras and the SP Sports are a medium/wide 245 tire. Later I swapped to 245/40-18 Dunlop Direzza DZ102 which were a lot softer and quieter (and a narrower 245). But the springs were just too jouncy and bouncy, especially in the rear where the rebound seemed to be dialed up way too high. Going over speedbumps is a joke, like there's no suspension in the back at all. I tried installing stiffer front and rear whiteline sway bars and that just increased NVH even more. It's been a painful 3 years. Fast forward to Oct of 2014 and I recently swapped the yellow springs out for the newly released black springs which lower the car an inch and lower the spring rate. The old Regular Guy black springs didn't lower the car at all so I never got them and the whole kit was so expensive that I didn't want to just toss them and invest in something new. I strongly considered going back to stock but stock sucked. These new lowering black springs feel about 20% softer and take a lot of the edge off of the harsher bumps. I also swapped to 9 inch wide 18 inch wheels which removed all of the slop from the tires and the tires look stretched now (which I don't like, but whatever). So my tire problem is sorted out, no more wiggle, and the springs feel softer and will hopefully settle even more and soften up to the point where the ride quality improves even more. I know others who have the GTWORX Bilstein kit with yellow springs and they love them. But they live in smoother areas with no bumps apparently. For Chicagoland, they aren't worth the back ache, angry girlfriends, and buyers remorse.
Great buy, just one question

When you installed the RCE yellow with Konis, was your ride height in the front higher than your ride height in the back? It's been two weeks and the ride height is like this. Thanks I put it onto a 2012 WRX hatch and used 2011 sedan donor struts.
